In fact the noise/E52 service problem might be easy to fix:
You just have to oil the mirror motor shaft in the laser unit.

Step-by-step instruction:

1 – Remove gently the top cover of the printer ( 4 screws – 2 on top/front + 2 in back/side).
2 – Be careful with the connectors going to the top LCD panel. You might want to disconnect the shorter one.
3 – Remove the laser unit located on top of the printer covered by a steel plate. 

To do that:
1 – Unplug (pull) the white flat connector going to the left side of the laser unit.
2 – Unscrew the 3 screws keeping the laser unit in place.
3 – The lower/right screw also maintains in place the second connector going to the unit. Remove it and unplug (pull) the connector.
4 – Squeeze out the laser unit from under the wires (going back and up).

You now have the laser unit outside of the printer.
1 - Remove the steel plate of the laser unit. There is a plastic shutter that will come loose. Don’t loose it and take note of its location in case you need to put it back.
2 – Unscrew the 4 screws maintaining the motor section and remove it.
3 – There is a small piece of black plastic that maintains the top part of the motor unit (with the mirrors) on the left side of the board. Twist it and remove it.
4 – Pull up the mirror part. 
5 – Be careful during all that not to touch any of the mirrors or prism or whatever seems to conduct light. If you do, you can always clean with isopropyl alcohol or glasses solution.
6 – Put some sewing machine oil on the shaft. Juuuust a little. I used machine oil SAE 20 or 40 (not sure – I didn’t look). WD40 would probably work also. Again, not too much – wipe the excess.
7 – Put everything back together.

good luck

disconnect the power and usb cable from the back of the printer and press and hold down the
power button for 30 sec and then reconnect the cables and try again...open the backdoor and
try to move the rollers in upward direction.Make sure the unit is connected directly to the
walljack.

You are facing e5 error which cannot be solved.

For Canon printer, if you refill about 4~5 times, especially color, the printer does not read that particular cartridge.

Well for solution? You need to replace the cartridge with new one.
Just blame Canon....

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
At least you can easily save $100 for color cartridge (facing e5 error after 4~5 times of refill)

Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

What is error e5 in mp 198 printer


E5 - The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed , or the ink cartridges are not installed properly..

  • In certain models of Canon Pixma printers such as the Canon MP160 and Canon MP150, you may receive an E5 error when trying to print. In this state, you will not be able to use any of the functions of your printer. The error itself is an ink cartridge error. It may be that you are using generic or off-brand ink cartridges in your Canon Pixma printer. Canon Pixma printers do not work with other brands of print cartridges; invest in Canon brand ink cartridges and this should take care of your problem.
